Low temperature behavior of propane confined in porous silica

Behavior of fluids is known to differ when they are confined in pores with typical diameters of a few nanometers. In nature this scenario plays out in a lot of examples. For example, water and hydrocarbon gases

Molecular motion of propane in silica pores: computer simulations compared with neutron scattering experiments

Understanding how fluids, and notably hydrocarbon gases, seep through porous rocks in the terrestrial environment is essential to understand the fundamental processes involved and also to aid better recovery of these gases from the earth. It is
